Lucius is finally feeling confident with his place in his pack. His new alpha and inner circle are fair and kind, and everything his abusive ex-leaders were not. Learning about the world beyond pack lands, Lucius takes online courses to earn his GED, planning to focus further studies in botany.
Everything changes when his pack takes in a dozen Angus shifters rescued from a herd in Texas. One of the rescuers who accompanies the shifters is a vampire that makes Lucius’s blood sing. Gypsum Vereen. While Lucius can’t deny his attraction to the male, he’d given up sex when the new alpha took over. His old inner circle had made the act nothing but degrading and painful, and he never wants to experience that again.
When Gypsum speaks of making love, can he dredge up enough faith to take a chance and learn the difference?
Reader Advisory: This novel contains references to past rape.

Review: This is the seventh book in A Loving Nip series. Lucius is a dingo shifter who has been rescued along with his brothers and now living with Alpha Dorian’s pack. Lucius had a traumatic experience in his old pack and is slowly learning to adjust to his new environment.
Gypsum, a vampire, is tasked to take several Angus shifters who were rescued to Dorian’s pack. There he meets his mate Lucius. It was so sweet the way Gypsum didn’t rush the wooing of his mate. I was so happy that he took his time and made sure Lucius understood and experienced different things when he was ready.
What Lucius had been through broke my heart as no one should be treated that way ever. Really good book with a lot of emotional scenes as well as an intense encounter with some Angus shifters near the end. Hot sex between Lucius and Gypsum added a layer of spice to and already fantastic story.
